Her escort actually ran into the Crimson Wind, who demanded 5k for safe passage from Nenyuk. Nenyuk, currently transporting ALOT of coins, said no.. and then called down to them to say, kill all the Byn Unit, escort me to Luirs, and I will reward you for doing so.

I don't see how Nenyuk thought it had a right to anything from the Byn after this!

Basically, as she was told, you die to protect your contract, that is what you are paid to do. Meza wasn't prepared to sacrifice her unit because Nenyuk wouldn't part with 5k from their cargo, that, could have been sorted out on the other end. To her, her reason for wanting to be a Sergeant, was to protect, guide and take care of those in her unit, she wasn't about to let them all die, for the sake of 5k, leaving the wagon in their position after they were dead. To her, it seemed like a no brainer.

Ash Tried to save Meza even spoke to Nenyuk on her behalf, but it seems they had already made up their mind.

I still miss the fuckery out of Ash, he was so awesome <3

I can't see how that should include being betrayed by the client. Meza was just thrown under a bus by Lieutenant Copper.  :(

How was that a betrayal?

If a wealthy person pays two peons to fight each other to the death in exchange for reward, where is the betrayal?

Maybe it was somewhat of an ego blow, to demonstrate to the Byn how insignificant they are in the view of Nenyuk, but there was no betrayal.

Yeah, it's not really a betrayal at all, the job was to protect the wagon, regardless of the details that goal was not reached.

Nenyuk took a sizeable blow to their coffers after known Raiders showed up to take money and were basically given carte Blanche to do as they please.

It is unfortunate that it happened though.

Meza failed her contract because she didn't protect the wagon. The Byn would have been expected to fight the raiders no matter the cost of losses. She was paid and hired to guard it at all costs, that it was the Byn does.
Three rules of Arm, murder, corruption, betrayal, and the whole situation had all three jumbled into it.
Meza could have attacked and killed, but her weakness was that she cared too much, thus, she basically sacrificed herself,whether it be her life or reputation, to make sure her unit survived.
Those with big hearts, get stamped down on, there is no room for such compassion in the Byn ^.^
I miss Meza, I loved her to bits, but the ending for her was so very perfect :)

The Byn is perhaps the most Zalanthan clan. Or it should be. Absolutely no room for mercy when you fight for coin and those that waiver? Death for them.

However, a good number of those that go in softer often have better stories than the ones that start out hard. Merely based on the fact they have a chance to evolve as a character instead of being the same person they began as.

I am sure given enough time Meza would have turned, become hard and cold as her character developed and lost friends. Turned sour as the world rolls before her, unyielding in its merciless onslaught. And if not? Maybe she wasn't the one for the job.

Just to chime in here, this is what happened with Sergeant Rush. After losing 2 (maybe 3) muls on contracts, watching HIS former Sergeant dropped by a few scant arrows, running half his unit through a roaring wall of flame and losing a few more, only to fail at his contract with no support... it became about his crew.

Sure. He'd assault jakhal dens. Send people to mug aides. Whatever it took, really... but anything that sounded like it'd lose him a Trooper+, he had to be specifically ordered.

And yet, thats probably barely 10% of the reason he was executed.
Get Hard, Byn.

Meza should have ordered her troops back then joined the Crimson Wind on the spot. And laughed in the Nenyuki's face.

That would have both made sense and had been hilarious! More coin for everyone, and they could have lied or something, piloted the transport off the nearest Shield Wall and say that the Nenyuki went mad, or everyone was mindbent and couldn't remember what happen while the CW took the transport.

"We tried to stop them but to no avail! The storm came out of nowhere but they insisted that they knew the path."

Mention that by the time the Byn got down there to inspect the damage, some other party must've made off with the coin. Wish there were more liars and cutthroat Bynners out there lol all they care about is their coin and their own, least that's how I see it.
